and ask them to oppose what he's calling the boehner tax hike. the looming question for republicans what may be willing to compromise is what's your bottom line? the fallback position that is most likely at this point may turn out to be extending the middle class tax cuts through the end of the year and then continuing this fight in the run-up the need to raise the debt ceiling the end of january or early february. just what we need for it to drag on even longer. we're back with more show after the break. stay with us. jennifer >>>> it's these "talking points" that the right have about "the heavy hand of government". i want to have that conversation. let's talk about it. really. really! that you're gonna lay people off because now the government's going to help you fund your health care. really? i wanna be able to have those conversations. not just to be confrontational, but to understand what the other side is saying. and you know, i'd like to arm our viewers with the ability to argue with their conservative uncle joe over the dinner table. >> announcer: ladies and gentlemen, it's

this morning. i don't think john boehner understands what compromise means. the president reduced the income from $12.2 billion, and boehner responded with the exact same proposal. >> it's not a compromise. in fact i would say that republicans don't want taxes to go up on the middle class, so why aren't we reaching an agreement? the only reason we are now is if republicans are too stubborn to reach a compromise. >> stephanie: right. boehner is pressing towards increase in the medicare eligibility age,. again it americans don't want that. where do we go from here with this? it feels as usual just completely stalled. >> i believe a deal will be made. they'll extend the middle class tax cuts or all tax cuts will expire. does anybody really believe that republicans will vote against a tax cut for 9 #% of americans. >> stephanie: i agree with you. obviously your colleague and some others are also talking about the fact -- i have an increasing concern that the speaker is trying to string this out until january 3rd, because that's when he would be reelected speaker. and this is holding the w

throat. boehner needs to paint obama as the one who is holding the country hostage. he wants to talk about holding the middle class hostage? no it's him holding the entire country hostage and our kids hostage, with his krin call refuse ool to enter the entitlement reform game. >> wow, he is really bad. >> stephanie: yeah i can see why he didn't get the radio show. >> sheky. >> stephanie: that was so merrill osmond. >> merrill was kind of the leader. >> stephanie: i dove donnie. steve doocy. >> europe is great because they have wonderful food and runny cheeses, but we shouldn't base our policies on theirs because they are stinkers. >> we should base it on singapore where they have no unemployment, and they have a competitive market. that protects workers. >> stephanie: we should be like singapore? >> oh my god. holy crap. he is a bigger idiot than i thought. he is not even trying to hide what a douche bag he is. >> stephanie: okay. bill o'reilly. really? is this his whole december? >> there is no doubt that your day you christian tradition in this country is under attack. and people l

they're looking at this same polling and yet john boehner is still saying things like this. >> where are the president's spending cuts? the longer the white house walks this process the closer our economy gets to the fiscal cliff. >> stephanie: how many times can the president say it? you know, this is not negotiable. tax rates have to go up on the wealthiest. >> right. well you know, it is a very strange situation. it does feel a lot like groundhog day. but i think john boehner knows what's going to happen and right now, what he's trying to do is make a deal that won't cost him his speakership and it also won't be undermined by people in his caucus. he needs to have a significant share of republican's vote for whatever we do and i think he's trying to do that. that's why he sent us home a day early last week and canceled business this week. i think he's trying to keep his own people out of town so he has more flexibility in coming up with a solution. >> stephanie: you know it seems to me, representative, you described it exactly right. that's the problem is that they're do

what they suggest that any deal -- sacrifice on entitlements is required so john boehner is not cannibalized by his caucus is pure beltway group think. it renders insignificant the human cost out in the country of the policy proposed to solve what is essentially a conundrum devised by unaccountable elites. you talk about alzheimer's disease. go ahead. >> no, no. because my father and all four of his siblings had it. the emotional and literal cost of the disease is extraordinary. it is $150,000 for every alzheimer's patient from diagnosis to death. we're coming into a boom because of the baby boomers. >> stephanie: there's 5.4 million people in the disease right now. that's taking a look at one disease and the impact on one group of people. what a horrible idea this is, right? >> yeah. i don't understand doing it just so you can maybe get enough rip can votes to push the top marginal rate to 37. that just -- that's an obscenity to me. i don't know how -- i think you saw this too in the politico piece yesterday where they went around to a bunch of ceos and to their everlasting sho
